John 5:8

Arise, take up thy bed, and walk (Egeire, aron ton krabatton sou kai peripatei). Present active imperative of egeirw, a sort of exclamation, like our "Get up." The first active imperative (aron of airw) means to pick up the pallet, and then "go on walking" (present active imperative of peripatew). For krabatton (pallet) see Mark 2:2-12 ; Mark 6:55 ; Acts 5:15 ; Acts 9:33 .
